Vermont Cancels Contract With Jon Gruber; Loses Out on $290,000
It looks like Gruber’s comments are coming back to bite him on the Obama – one state that has a contract with the MIT economist is stopping payment after he admitted Obamacare was written deceptively to fool “stupid American voters.”
The state of Vermont has stopped payment on the contract of Jonathan Gruber following a series of video statements showing the Obamacare architect repeatedly insulting voters and intentionally misleding the public in the crafting of the Affordable Care Act.
On Wednesday, Lawrence Miller, chief of health care reform for the Gov. Peter Shumlin administration, announced that Vermont would stop payment of Gruber’s $450,000 contract with the state.
As of this week, Vermont has paid Gruber $160,000 on a contract that began July 21 and was expected to continue until Feb. 15.
Miller said Gruber, an MIT economist, will provide all deliverables specified in the contract for the upcoming January presentation of Shumlin’s financing plan for single-payer health care to the Legislature. He will not receive any additional payments.
If only elections had the same consequences as YouTube videos, maybe Obama wouldn’t be a totalitarian dictator.
